City of Toronto staff will be available to answer questions from media in the Members Lounge at City Hall on Wednesday concerning the Street Needs Assessment taking place Wednesday night.

Date: Wednesday, April 17
Time: 5 p.m.
Location: Members Lounge, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The Members Lounge will serve as the City Hall field office Wednesday for the outdoor survey in portions of the downtown area.

Volunteers and staff of City and community agencies will start the evening at one of 18 field offices throughout the city at either 4:30 or 5:30 p.m., depending on whether the field office is supporting the indoor or outdoor survey. Volunteers will sign in and be assigned to teams. There will be a brief orientation and teams will review their assigned study areas and the 13-question survey. Teams are expected to begin their assignments and start leaving the field office at about 6:30. They will return before midnight.

Media covering this event are reminded that privacy legislation prevents the City from allowing media to enter City-operated shelters. Also, In order to maintain the survey's methodological integrity, City staff are not able to arrange for working media to be embedded in a Street Needs Assessment team.

More information about the Street Needs Assessment is available at www.toronto.ca/housing.
